Barbie on OTT: Margot Robbie starrer is now available to watch online, but netizens demand Oppenheimer
The Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling starrer Barbie is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video
The Margot Robbie starrer Barbie is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The film was a unique and metaphorical take on the cult-classic doll which played a significant role in making the childhood of every young girl oh-so delightful. The movie was helmed by Greta Gerwig and also starred Ryan Gosling in the lead role.
However, the movie is available for rent on the OTT streaming platform at $499. This has not gone down well with many netizens who were looking forward to watching the movie for free as they already have a Prime subscription. While many fans are more interested in the Christopher Nolan directorial Oppenheimer.
Many fans reacted to the news by demanding the Cillian Murphy starrer Oppenheimer which had witnessed an epic clash with Barbie at the box office. However, Margot Robbie’s film emerged slightly more victorious at the box office and earned around $1.2 billion globally. However, netizens were nevertheless upset for having to pay some extra bucks from their pockets to watch the film on Amazon Prime Video.
One of the netizens stated, “Liked the post > Saw the "rent" word > unliked.” While a user added, “Why prime is not in its prime.” A netizen went on to say that she thought Barbie and Oppenheimer would be released together in digital. The comment said, “I thought they were gonna release Barbie and Oppenheimer together on digital.” A user criticized the OTT streaming giant further by saying, “Your business model. It might work in the US but not in India. I am not gonna renew my subscription. It's a waste of money it's not like you guys have any good original content either.”
Desimartini’s review for Barbie read, “Greta Gerwig's direction aims to not only highlight the complexities and stereotypical norms which women have to mold but also is an empowering tale of women coming to terms with their flaws, incapabilities, and complexities but embracing them seamlessly. One of the men in the Real World is seen telling Ken that they've learned to 'hide' patriarchy subtly thus sending him into a trance on what the concept of patriarchy is curated of. Machismo, horses, and positions of power are what Ken abides by when it comes to coming to terms with patriarchy. While the journey of every Barbie, as well as the mother-daughter duo in the Real World, is unfettering and liberating, the Kens learn in a hard-hitting way how they are a lot more than being Barbie's love interest and someone who pines for her attention.”
